Melissa’s Baby Shower
Pink and grey lanterns strung across the room. Onesies, dresses, and tiny bottoms hanging on clothespins. Tiers of tiny sandwiches mixed with trays of dim sum. These were all the elements of Melissa’s baby shower, organized by two of her close friends from Occidental, Liz and Margaret. A bunch of girls from all directions of Melissa’s life – college, work, or friends whom she has met through her husband – came to celebrate Melissa and the anticipated arrival of Isabella. Just weeks away from her due date, Melissa enjoyed the moment to socialize, catch up with old friends, and bask in the glow of her pregnancy. All you could see was Melissa’s smile and her friends could clearly see the anticipation for a huge, but exciting, change that is going to occur in her and Jason’s life.
Congratulations, Jason and Melissa. Isabella is coming into a world filled with love, humor, friendship, and most of all, two people who are dedicated to each other and their families. On top of that, there is a large group of friends waiting for her birth and arrival so there are plenty of aunts and uncles waiting to meet the little one and shower her with unconditional love!
I love the tiny shoes that were delicately hanging! They are so tiny and just adorable.
These shorts are just too much! I love the pattern and Isabella is going to be one stylish baby.
Great finds from Etsy, which will show off Isabella’s Chinese half:
There was definitely an abundance of food along with sangria and an assortment of tea. Everyone definitely enjoyed a plate full and conversed over a well put together luncheon. The cupcakes were made by Liz – chocolate with vanilla sprinkled frosting – and the dim sum was provided by Hong Kong Palace in Rowland Heights, California.
Bold and fierce colors within a circle of friends:
The first baby shower game was measuring Melissa’s belly. A couple guests were pregnant so they used their own bellies to judge, others eyeballed, and some put the grey yarn around their own waists in order to determine the correct size. Some people were close, but there were a good handful that were way off, prompting a lot of laughter from Melissa. As a photographer, it was a joy capturing Melissa’s many facial expressions and humor as each person wrapped their yarn around her.
